Title

The Advantages of the RTS Method in MIMO OTA Measurements

Abstract

This paper proposed a radiated two-stage based method for the Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system evaluations. By using the proposed method, not only the final throughput values, but also the antenna patterns, the antennas' envelope correlation coefficient, the antennas' imbalance and the radiated sensitivity of the MIMO device can be obtained over the air. Moreover, through these parameters, the antenna performance and the radio frequency circuit performance can be investigated individually, which is significant for engineers to find out the imperfections and to improve the design qualities. All in all, this method is valuable for research and development for MIMO devices.
